I found this one hard to do but it may have been the lousy fabric. I ripped out more than I sewed. In any case, I am not doing it again. Bye bye Shooting Star!
You did a really good job with this Emily. Pretty block.
Thanks, Kris. I appreciate that.
Great work again Emily, now i know thats tricky i will leave it to near the end.
lots of love
nice job emily, it was a tricky block.

I put the Shooting Star on my design wall and I do not like it at all. I have to do it again. I'll do that as the last flower, but I am going to applique it from a copy of the picture that I downloaded. It looks easier and more realistic. Thank you for your comment, Gini.
Tricky it is, Frances. I can't tell you how many times I took out stitches. Just take your time doing it and it should be fine. Maybe my fingers are just getting old. Thanks for your comment too.
Emily, your block is very pretty. I realy like the fabric you used for the flower petals.
I've decided to put Shooting Star somewhere I will never see it again. I have downloaded a photo of one from the internet and have made a pattern of it which is much prettier and easier to applique. That is the one I will be doing next. I just couldn't leave a hole in the quilt where the Shooting Star should have been., I will show it to you all when it is done.
Emily:I found this one hard to do
I found that I did not like the Shooting Star that came with the pattern and I hated my rendition of it. To me it just didn't look like a real shooting star so I downloaded a photo of a shooting star and made my own pattern. Here it is. I would be glad to share the pattern with anyone who wants it
very nice emily.

This is nice Emily. Very pretty block.
You win hands down. Agree the one with the pattern was ugly(hate using that word when it is somone's art) but yours is fabulous and does the flower justice. good job.
Thank you ladies and Frank. I appreciate your comments, good or bad.
